Forests sustain the planet and provide air, soil, climate cycles. These ecosystem services enable economic sectors. Forests are under threat, last decade about 13 million of hectares of forests were deforested. A system to provide monitoring and prevention are needed to sustain the forest but only a few countries have implemented a smart forest system alike. By utilizing sensors, minimum wireless system and renewable energy will provide more accurate, real time, efficient energy and easy to

Our proposed system will consist of low power camera and grid of fire and smoke detectors, humidity and temperature sensors connected each other as a mesh network and each powered by a solar panel and lithium battery processed by microcontroller then send data periodically to the monitoring server and gives precaution information when some case happened. The system use environment disguise and periodically maintain to ensure it works. While precaution information can be shared and access by government or even public, human act are needed to solve it. Thus it could assist the already implemented system and utilize the available resources as possible.
